Thanksgiving & Christmas

So, I'm way behind on the blog. No excuses.

Yes. We are raking in shorts and tanks in December. 

Thanksgiving was a little different this year. My dad had knee replacement surgery the Monday before Thanksgiving, so I went to Abilene on Sunday to help out. My in-laws kept the kids until Matthew could get to their house on Wednesday. I basically left my parents house for about 2 hours to have Thanksgiving with my in-laws and then went back to take care of my dad. God blessed him greatly and allowed his knee to heal properly, but it was still rough on him the first week.

Christmas was so much fun this year. Will was really into it and asked tons of questions about Santa and when he would get here. We spent Christmas at my parents house where we went to a candlelight service on Christmas Eve, ate a huge brunch after all the gifts were unwrapped and then had a wonderful dinner that evening. It was a lot of cooking and cleaning, but so much fun and very yummy. 

Will got lots of firetrucks and other rescue vehicles.

We spent 2 good weeks celebrating Halloween this year. First, we went to Hall's Pumpkin Farm. We went there last year and loved it. It is free, there is a corn maze, playground, food, and hay rides. The kids love looking at all of the pumpkins and it's a great photo spot. 


The next week, we went to Boo at the Zoo. They gave out candy and had lots of games for the kids to play.

On Halloween, we had a Trunk or Treat at our church. We served hot dogs, had a DJ, and gave away tons of candy. Will loved playing with his cousin Henry and eating as much candy as he could. Reese enjoyed putting candy in each of the kids bags. She would put a piece of candy in and say "Thank you!" Everyone loved it! People kept commenting on how she is so beautiful. What pretty eyes!
